    The staff were really jolly, kind and very accommodating. The santa was great, very funny and spent lots of time talking and having photographs with the children. The only negative I have to say is the breakfast could of been a bit warmer. Apart from that, everything was fantastic! And more to the point my children got to spend some quality time with santa, and we didn't thi k that was going to be possible after the rubbish year we have all had! Thankyou risaro at Coventry arms!

    Unfortunately because of the covid problem the pub was quite. However food, service and the wonderful fire made up for it. Our first time back since the latest lock down. Well done Katie and team!!

    Welcoming staff and a lovely wood burning open fire, great atmosphere. Reasonable menu, freshly cooked, and really hot, could have been quicker though, staff obviously ran off their feet. Very busy with take away orders apparently. Would definitely go there again.

    What a great idea to arrange a covid friendly breakfast with Santa! Despite the restrictions, which were managed excellently, it was a magical experience for our little boy. Well done team. And one of the jolliest Santa's ever! ????????

    We did a late booking on a saturday so were pleased to find a table but it was at the back with limited heating and no atmosphere. Food was ok. Large ribs with plenty of meat but also fatty. Nice desserts. No frklls, reasonable food and friendly staff but coyld have been better

    The restaurant inside has been modernised and lost its former atmosphere. The huge fireplace is great. Service was very good and staff very friendly and helpful. Food was fine but not extraordinary. I didn't like the chocolate fudge cake that much and the ice cream didn't have much flavour.

    Excellent food, very tasty and the meat is always amazing, the only fault we had with our meal is that it was not served very hot which was a shame. Staff lovely.

    Amazing food and amazing service. Considering all the restrictions at the minute there was no issues and everyone was so welcoming. Our waitress Katie was fantastic!!! The food was, as always, absolutely stunning!! Can't wait to go back but to be able to take lots of friends to enjoy such a wonderful place.

    I booked this reservation for my wife and myself the previous evening. The reservation process was very simple and quick online. We arrived 15 minutes early as the traffic on our journey was light. This presented the staff with no issues, and we were immediately seated, having had our details and temperature taken for COVID-19 "Track & Trace". Staff were all wearing masks or visors, which we found reassuring. As soon as we were seated, our order for drinks was taken, and quickly brought to the table; when our order for food was taken. Whilst it took between 20 - 30 minutes for the food to be cooked, it was superb. The homemade bacon & cheese burger had an 8oz smoked brisket burger in a very fresh soft white bun with cheese, smoked bacon and a garnish of lettuce. Homemade coleslaw and thin & crispy fries came with this. The burger had a distinctive taste that both my wife and I really enjoyed. We also had desserts and coffee which were equally good. Service was friendly, polite and unobtrusive. Whilst this choice of venue was a bit of a "stab in the dark" for us, we have unintentionally found a really good pub restaurant. We will certainly use it again.

    The place was a bit spartan with very little on the walls . The service was good and the main (slow cooked brisket) was amazing. I had the Fill You Up portion and my wife had the regular. There was such a lot of meat. The veggies were very nice and tasted really fresh too. The deserts we had were disappointing though and were a bit bland. My crumble didn’t really taste of anything other than crumble and my wife’s lemon meringue pie she could hardly taste the lemon. That said we will definitely go back and try some of the other slow cooked meals but perhaps have a starter next time and not a pud!

    Staff were welcoming but there was a long wait for our food. Starters were good when they finally arrived. Main course was as described -slow cooked brisket - the men loved it but I thought it was like school dinner food.

    Food was ok. Quite large portions. All 3 of us had some form of brisket dish but all cooked to different levels. Was quite expensive for what we had. I doubt we would gp again. Whixh is a shame as very local for us.
